Calculus III for Cells

Last year, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania revealed surprising insights into how cells respond to surface curvature. Specifically, they investigated how cells respond to cylindrical surfaces, which are common in biology. They found that cells change the static configurations of their shapes and internal structures. Now, the researchers, led by Kathleen Stebe and recent […]

The Future of Technology: Penn Engineering Teach-In Panels

As new technologies emerge, whether related to health care, artificial intelligence, or other aspects of society, they bring with them new ethical challenges. The topic of the future of technology was front and center on day three of the Penn Teach-in. The series of free public events convened by the faculty senate aims to bring […]

Penn Engineers’ Gold Nanorods Key to Measuring Materials’ Squishiness at the Nanoscale

Rheology is the science of studying how soft materials and complex fluids deform and flow under stress. These materials are everywhere in biology, and since their relative stiffness or squishiness is relevant to diseases, such as cancer, there is a need to accurately measure just how squishy they are. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania’s […]

Engineers As Artists

If Penn students were asked in a random campus survey to describe their individual skillsets and learning styles as either “left brain” (analytical, qualitative) or “right brain” (artistic, intuitive), the majority would most likely answer by naming one cerebral hemisphere or the other. An exceptional and talented few would be able to reply, “both.”
